AJAX for artists


Plasma Studii:

sorry if i wasn't clear. not what i meant by "just keep quiet". meant, "don't tell anybody, you are just doing it for no reason". glad people (and you) say stuff (even when i disagree). am mostly devils advocate who wants everybody to think hard about why they do what they do. so few admit the most trivial things to themselves.

and it is cool posting the "template" for folks to use and not have to figure out.

do think there's a weird imbalance of support for popularity over support for utility. group mentality is often a bad thing. (which is another reason to always be skeptical, i guess)

Plasma Studii,

You bring up some really good points about past trends - I can certainly understand feeling burned by over-hyped new tech. Been there, done that.

I have been programming (not html coding, but programming) since around 1979 - making my living with it since 1990. I am not sure I need to justify my free advice beyond that.

"to Ajax or not to Ajax" will probably be a moot point in a few years anyway. that's really not my question though. no, i don't mind obsoletism. though higher end tech, rarely becomes obsolete. C was around before most of us were born. Perl was probably around before the net. Java has existed since it was created. PHP is relatively new, but i do hope it survives (not because i can't learn a new thing?) but because it's a useful solution. (CGI bins can be a pain for everyone, not just the server programmer)[...]

OPEN CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - Inbox/Outbox, logistics of the public sphere


Inbox/Outbox is an e-mail institution operating and establishing connections between virtual and real public spheres as a means to propelling public access. Characterized by its temporary function as an agent, I/O avoids institutional incorporation of its subjects, thus removing itself from the final context, as well as allowing internal institutions and contexts to occur. I/O is based on a division into two binary functions, Inbox and Outbox, Inbox being the receiver of virtual data, which in turn is processed by Outbox and "forwarded" to public spaces.

Inbox/Outbox is currently channelling its activities through Centrifug, an exhibition space within Konsthall C in Stockholm, Sweden. The selection of exhibitions at Centrifug is based on a public booking list, released once every year. The Inbox/Outbox exhibition period is February 22nd - March 5th. I/O is for this occasion calling for participation. Admission will not be limited in any way, neither by amount of data, number of participants nor by any other criteria for selection, given the condition that submitted content doesn't infringe upon laws or regulations.

Submitted data must be suited for printing onto plain (A4) paper or for writing to audio-CD. Deadline is set for February 20th. Submit your data to inbox@inboxoutbox.org

Feel free to forward this invitation. See also: http://www.inboxoutbox.org

THE TANK FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION CAMPAIGN


this a FWD from my email today...

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

as most of you know, the tank is a nonprofit performing arts space in lower manhattan. we believe in maintaining a space for artists in manhattan where they can perform and explore without feeling the financial pressures that manhattan increasingly brings.
We have been in our new home in Tribeca with Collective:Unconscious for almost a year now (!) and it is so nice to not be writing you all on a weekly basis telling you we are losing our home, like we had to do for the first few years of existence.
However, we are still struggling to get by in the big city. But we dont plan on staying that way! oh no.

To that end, we are proud to be launching our Freedom of Expression Campaign. The goal is to raise $100,000 over the next few months to help us secure our somewhat tenuous foothold on the big apple, increase and stabilize our administrative staff, and continue bringing you fantastic, affordable programming for the years to come.

SO HERES HOW IT WORKS
we have secured a few amazing patrons who are collectively willing to donate $65,000 IF (and yes, this here is THE RUB) IF we are able to get 1,000 additional individual donations. Thats right, if 1,000 of our friends, artists, and loved ones donate even $12 to the tank this year, then these donors will unlock the $65,000 they have pledged and we will reach our goal. they want to see that we are loved. can you show them we are loved? yes, you can!
PRETTY NEAT, YES? YES!

But 1000 people is a lot. ive only got like 14 myspace friends and that includes Tom, so thats just not gonna cut it.

so weve got a website. you can go there now and donate any amount of money, become a tank member, get some free stuff in exchange, and generally know youve done your part in securing the future of a place you care about.

YOU CAN EVEN SETUP A MONTHLY DONATION OF $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD.
WOULD YOU EVEN NOTICE AN EXTRA $1 ON YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT EACH MONTH? NO, YOU WOULD PROBABLY NOT!

READY? Just do it right now while you're thinking about it. Think how good it will feel!! IT WILL FEEL GREAT!

http://www.thetanknyc.org/giving.html

Thanks folks. and if the tank is a place you care about or has been good to you, please consider spreading the word and letting people know...stick it on your blog or your myspace page or whatever. Thanks Thanks Thanks!

Re: Re: thoughts on Appropriation versus Sampling


joy,
yes, i agree...
I really don't have a simple thought that doesn't involve appropriation or sampling on some level. your painting and the photograph involve both but are different resolutions. Refusing that doesn't have to be a generational thing, as in when you were born or what sort of music you have been exposed to. Being able to accept it may be a bent of mind that is reinforced from being creative with a computer though, i hope so, but unfortunately the person suing you hasn't been bitten by that yet.
